Digital payment: the breakthrough is close

At the end of January, 17 of the 19 central banks in the eurozone ceased printing the 500 euro note; the remaining two countries, Germany and Austria, are set to bid a final farewell to the violet banknote at the end of April. It is not only the notes that are dying a death at the moment, though: coins, too, are increasingly being banished from day-to-day life. Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy, for instance, have already done away with one and two-cent pieces. While on the one hand money printing presses are increasingly falling prey to rust, on the other the range of contactless payment options is widening rapidly. PayPal, Google Pay and even Apple Pay: the list of providers of digital wallets is getting ever longer.

Norwegian farmed salmon: a tasty treat for consumers and investors

For many people, salmon is now an essential part of their culinary experience. The pinkish meat of the fish can be used in the preparation of a wide variety of dishes, from a finely marinaded tartar steak through grilled fillet to pasta, to mention just three examples. It's hardly surprising, then, that salmon dominates the fish market in Switzerland, with retailers selling more than 3,200 tonnes in 2017. In second place came fish fingers, of which salmon generally makes up around two thirds (see graphic). Enthusiasm for salmon is not confined to the Swiss Confederation, however: its consumption is rising steadily across the globe. One of the central drivers is the sharp growth in the world's population. While some 7.6 billion people live on the planet at present, their number, according to United Nations estimates, could climb to almost 9.8 billion by 2050 – an increase of just under 30%.
